When you wake up in the morning, does your day start off roughly because of your aching jaws? Rolling over and telling your spouse “good morning” isn’t even enjoyable anymore—more like painful. This is a common symptom of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ disorder), which is caused by a misaligned bite. Luckily, there is a neuromuscular dentist in Sacramento, Dr. A. Scott Grivas III, that can help you better understand TMJ disorder and explain the treatment options available at our office.

Living with tooth loss significantly decreases your quality of life as you lose confidence and can no longer enjoy simple tasks, like eating and speaking. You could choose a traditional option to replace your missing teeth, like dentures; however, they will never fully look or feel like natural teeth. Not to mention, they come with certain disadvantage as you must have adjustments and new prosthetics made as the years go on. To resolve the complications of traditional prosthetics, many turn to dental implants in Sacramento. You will make a true investment in your quality of life with a permanent solution.
